This Moron replayed to my post (I'm selling my truck) on Craigslist via text asking me for more information about my vehicle. On his text he mentioned that email works best for him since he claimed "he is not good at text"
Here's the email he sent to me after his text message.Scott Clarkson

to me
Thanks,
I'm just asking about it to make sure its in good condition as i'm buying it for my Dad as a surprise and he doesn't know about it, so can you assure me i will not be disappointed? also no shipment involved as i have a mover that will come for it. I read and understand the AD quite alright, but there are few things i would like to know about it as well :
(1) are you the first owner ?
(2) Your last asking price. ?
(3) Do you have a paypal account ?
(4)Do you have more pictures you can send?

I work with the military air-force and presently in camp serving the nation which is strictly no calls. My Mode of payment is PayPal because i don't have access to my bank account online, But i have it attached to my PayPal account. Since I'm requesting this transaction to be done via PayPal...I will be responsible for all the PayPal fees/charges on this transaction, If you don't have an account with PayPal, It's pretty easy, safe an secure to open one. Just log on to paypal.com. I hope we can make this transaction as fast as possible. Less I forgot, I have a Mover that will come for pickup once payment is cleared in your PayPal account and they will be handling the title for me.

I wait to read back from you.

Sincerely,

Scott.
